I can officially say Happy Saturday! My body clock is back on schedule and I’m no longer confused about what day of the week it is, as was the case on Thursday. However, I am telling myself that today is January 1st since I didn’t like how my year started off (food wise) yesterday. I am starting fresh today, ignoring all lazy thoughts and fueling my body with healthy, colorful eats…and LOTS of exercise.
Speaking of colorful eats, I made my first Green Monster for lunch today. For those of you not-so seasoned bloggers, a Green Monster is a smoothie made with spinach. I have only seen and heard wonderful things about these smoothies from fellow bloggers, and I’ve been wanting to give it whirl. The adorable Angela founded the Green Monster Movement in response to the positive feedback she received about her green creation.
My Virgin GM:
1 cup organic baby spinach
1 cup organic almond milk
1 frozen banana
1/3 cup frozen blueberries
My first Green Brown (due to the blueberries) Monster was 100% delicious! I am so excited to experiment with other versions, including 1) Amazing Grass, 2) yogurt, 3) flax, 4) almond butter, and more!
I had a great treadmill workout, inspired by Angela, before my Green Monster experience:
45 minutes walking @ 10.0 incline [15 minutes each @ 3.8, 4.0, 4.2mph]
45 Leg Raises
Planks (45 seconds each right, left, center)
2 x 10 push-ups
15 tricep extensions @ 15lbs.
2 x 15 squats @ 15lbs.
15 Toe Touches @ 30lbs.
Hope you’re enjoying your weekend. Off to run a couple errands…
